Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani hailed the growing relations between Tehran and Nicosia, saying that the two countries’ parliaments enjoy very cordial and extensive relations in all fields.

“Given the geographical position of Cyprus and that the country is the nearest member of the European Union to Iran, relations between Iran and Cyprus have always been cordial,” Larijani said in a joint press conference with President of the Cypriot House of Representatives Demetris Syllouris in Tehran on Sunday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He emphasized that the Iranian and Cypriot parliaments have reached many agreements over the past months, adding that in his meeting with Syllouris before the press conference, the two sides discussed ways of implementing the accords.

Larijani added that the two sides also exchanged views about expansion of banking cooperation to facilitate trade relations between Iranian and Cypriot businessmen.

Syllouris said Cypriot businesses are eager to work with their Iranian counterparts, adding that the two governments need to take steps to pave the way for increased cooperation between their private sectors.
